Flags of Our Fathers or Letters From Iwo Jima first?

I just got Letters From Iwo Jima from Netflix and Flags of Our Fathers hasn't arrived yet and won't till after the weekend. I'm anxious to watch a new movie, but I wanna know if I'll get any benefit out of watching the first released movie first.

It's good to watch the fair film first - Flags. Flags had a good point, but the whole movie seemed preachy, forced and unnatural. Fair acting too.

And then finish it off with the excellent film - Letters. Letters was one of the best Asian movies I've seen in ages. Interesting, exciting story from start to finish; great acting as well in comparison to Asian-made movies with annoying overracting. Letters just flowed smoothly.

Flags of our Father: B-
Letters to Iwo Jima: A
